OUR NEXT PRODUCTION
A farce by Neil Simon
28 – 30 September, 2017 at The Green Room Theatre, Dorking
7.45pm (doors open at 7.15pm)
The Assistant Deputy Minister of Finance and his wife are having friends round to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, but the first guests arrive to find no sign of the wife or the domestic help, and the Minister is in his bedroom, too dazed to speak and with a bullet wound to the head! As the other guests arrive, each with their own problems, they need a plan to save their host, and themselves, from scandal. This hilarious farce illustrates how quickly a situation can escalate out of control when people lie to cover up a potentially embarrassing situation.
With all the usual ingredients of mistaken identity, injury, coincidence, silliness and, of course, human nature, an entertaining evening is guaranteed*.
Neil Simon is best known for his creation of “The Odd Couple”, a play that famously became a film pairing Walter Matthau with Jack Lemmon. Other successful plays/films by Simon include “California Suite” and “Barefoot in the Park”.
